About University of Northampton

The University of Northampton is one of the youngest universities in the UK, gaining full university status and research degree awarding powers in 2005.

Whilst they may be a ‘new’ University, they have made their impact in the Higher Education sector. They are committed to doing things differently; for example, they are the first University in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012 and are dedicated to creating social impact in all that they do.

Their overt focus on positive change was spearheaded by their relocation to Northampton town centre with the opening of their brand-new Waterside Campus for the 2018/2019 academic year. The impetus of this bold move was to create a learning experience based on how their students want to learn, rather than how it is expected, whilst also securing the sustainable future of the University.

Since 2018, they have embraced their new state-of-the-art campus, being witness to many day-to-day interactions/experiences of the University community within their new physical estate. Listening and learning from those experiences, has allowed them to identify further opportunities to evolve. Against a backdrop of sustained growth in student numbers, with 2022 marking their current record year, this is an exciting era for the University of Northampton.
